“We are excited to be in La Jolla and to bring our culinary innovation to this beautiful city. This new concept is a treat for both us, and those who visit our eclectic kitchen. La Jolla locals and visitors alike will be able to enjoy layers of flavorful, traditional Mexican dishes in a young, bright and casual atmosphere,” said Omar Ramirez, Executive Chef at Josefas Cocina Mexicana.
The walls of the 5,800 square-foot cocina will feature the colorful work of artist Alfredo Libre Garcia (shown below). The menu includes dishes like sopes, tostadas, and quesadillas; a selection of salads, tacos ceviches, tortas and fajitas; as well as steak, chicken and seafood entrees like a mixed-grill chicken, cactus paddle, and ranch style chorizo served in an authentic stone mortar. Desserts include flan de gueso and homemade ice cream, which will soon be delivered right to your table in a unique paletero cart.
The restaurant will open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, and will have a robust Happy Hour Menu. Taco Tuesday specials will go from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday thru Friday. Patrons can expect a bevy of margaritas, local and imported beers, and creative cocktails.
